Graffiti as Art

It was a rare occasion: seldom does it happen that a work of a graffiti artist is presented in an actual gallery. This was such an event and what we expected is graffiti in a form of paintings nicely and orderly presented on the walls.

The event in Sankt Hans Gade 19 was visible from far away- quite a big crowd gathered outside of the “We are related” Gallery having chats, sipping beers. It was a particular crowd; one could easily say that they knew what graffiti is and were familiar with the “GH” ( Ghost’s famous Tag in the NYC Subway).

The exhibition was exactly what we expected: colorful graffiti forms in a more organized way ( our favorites were those made on actual subway leaflets). We could say: ” we kinda liked it but it didn’t kill us”. What we missed was a diversity of styles that we know that Ghost is capable of ( just go on http://www.cousinfrank.com/ ) but on the other hand the whole exhibition was amazingly coherent. Despite everything, the question whether Graffiti is ART will stay unsolvable…!
